Q3: Clouded but silver lining

Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton qualified their Mercedes 1-2 on the grid for the Monaco Grand Prix, butthe big question will be on Sunday when the cars run in race trim as in recent Grands Prix they have gone backwards as the tyres degrade. The people who are most likely to take advantage are Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber in the Red Bulls, who are third and fourth with Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso next up. Their chances will depend on tyre strategies. The top 10 is completed by Sergio Perez’s McLaren, Adrian Sutil’s Force India, Jenson Button’s McLaren and Jean-Eric Vergne’s Toro Rosso.

  1. this mark’s Team Mercedes third ( 3thrd ) pole position in succession sir.
    it is clear and evident to me that in the 21st century only the pole sitter is getting results no matter what the outcome of the contest on Sunday.
    since the Daimler CEO showed up in Catalonia the silver arrows are getting some Return On Investment ( ROI ) for the share holders thereby keeping the brand in focus for public consumption in my experience.
    enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle while near Cannes Film Festival Joe.

  2. Alonso will fly off the line and jump Webber like usual, so he could be in an interesting spot by lap 1
